PAS Version and Compatibility
The NetWare Print Server add-on requires PAS 2.5 (EE) build 1076 or greater.
The Secure Document Release (SDR) add-on is not available for NetWare and does not function
with NetWare printers.
Several new files have been added that are not
mentioned in the installation instructions of the
Installation Guide PAS25-NetWareInstall.pdf. The file
containing the install files incorporates the sub-folder
structure required on the NetWare server making it
more obvious where each file should be placed.
All PAS files except those in the System and
Public\Win32 folders can be installed any other volume
and folder such as NDPS:\SM_PAS (the default is
SYS:\SM\). The SM_Cfg.ini file permits you to specify
the volume and root folder where you install files
currently found under the SM folder.
For New Installations
1. Map a drive to the SYS: volume on the NetWare
2. Extract the files to the mapped drive. This will copy
all required files to their appropriate subfolders.
3. Edit the Autoexec.ncf file to add LOAD
NWExHand.nlm command to immediately before
the LOAD SMRemote.nlm command.
4. Read the configuration instructions in the Installation

5. Run System Manager on the Management Workstation and reconfigure the SM Gateway
